Colony Eclipse 24: customized

12 06 2015

The Colony Eclipse 24 has had my attention ever since Colony dropped a sneak peek of it earlier this year.

Once I got a chance to get a closer look at the specs, my interest was piqued further. This was a nice looking bike…and one of the better equipped completes on the market!

That being said, every rider likes to customize their bike a bit, no matter how good it comes stock, to make it “their own”.

Will C. did just that, customizing his Colony Eclipse 24 to make it just the way he wanted, with no compromises.

The end result looks pretty sweet!

will24-02Here’s the spec list:

Frame: 2016 Colony Eclipse
Fork: S&M Pitchfork 24
Stem: Colony Squareback
Bars: Colony Cromo
Grips: Colony Much Room
Sprocket: BSD Superlite 3D 28t
Cranks: Salt Plus Groove 175mm
Pedals: Snafu Anorexic
Hubs: Colony Sealed 9t
Chain: Shadow Conspiracy Interlock Supreme
Rims: Odyssey Hazard Lite
Tires: Innova
Seat: Unknown “…but super comfy and [Will’s] had it for over a decade”

According to Will, the bike “rides great – super smooth and solid” and still “under 25 lbs” with the mods.

 Will still has plans to switch out the bars (…and if I could be so bold with a suggestion…a pair of tanwall Stolen Joint tires or DMR Supermotos would really put this one over for the top for me…)

All in all, not too shabby.

Looking forward to seeing more 24″ Colony bikes under riders’ feet in the future.
